V/A - Volume Two (UK CD & Book / 1991)



It seems as if there is a strong response to these compilations. Thanks for all your feedback Here's the next in the series.

I've collected 16 Volumes of these specific CD / Book releases, only find out there are 17 and a slue of others that follow in line with the 'Volume' name. I actually have others too. This was quite a UK force back when they were released and it was a bit pricey. Now you can get most of them for under $10. I always enjoyed the 'exclusive' mixes, remixes and new tracks.

Rhythmatic - Beyond The Bleep (UK Import CDS / 1991)




I bought this back in 1991 because I was all about anything that came out of the UK label Network. Rhythmatic was no exception and actually was one of my favourite ensembles at the time. It was a bit frustrating to see that this CDS was really only a promotional tool for an upcoming release. That being said, the two tracks are exceptional, with one being unique to this release.


01) Nu-Groove 4:38
02) Exclusive Splat Sample Mix (features 'Wind Me Up' & 'Nu-Groove') 10:54

V/A - Twin Tone Catalog Sampler (More Hits From Mid America) (Promo CD / 1992)




Every now and then, you have to enjoy a random various artists compilation / sampler promo! This one hails from the label Twin Tone based out of Minneapolis, MN. A lovely one at that with some quality tracks from bands gone by and some that still work it out! BTW, this was another good & cheap find from a local used music store. All art is included.

King - Steps In Time (CD [1985] / 1994 Expanded Re-Release)




Struck it rich again at the local Goodwill! This is the 1994 Oglio Records Expanded Re-Release (released on 7/19/94) of the classic 1985 original. It generally sells for about $6-12, but I got my (VG) copy for $0.99...and a 5% frequent shopper discount! Years ago this was fetching $30+ on eBay and Amazon,  but back in 2010 Cherry Red Records (UK) remastered and re-released it, so prices are moderate for a used copy these days. BTW, reselling mine on eBay soon! Look under the seller (DJRAF2003) to bid on this original re-release.
